: I see your point on the smaller wire diameter makes perfect sense. My

: But from what I'm understanding is that I can achieve the same magnetic
: field by using more windings of a smaller gauge. Is that correct?
Yes. The magnetic field is directy proportional to the number of turns times the current flowing through those turns. So, 10 amps thru 10 turns creates the same field at 1 amp through 100 turns.

I looked at the site, and my impression is that it seems to be too good to be true... :^) The circuit seems to simply switch the output of the inverter to selected spark plug via relays triggered via a modified distributor. My take on the circuit is that it will not work as shown for a variety of reasons, even if the engine could indeed run on water (which I also am quite skeptical about). There will not be sufficient voltage to fire the plugs, but perhaps some electrolytic action is being proposed to generate O2 and H2. There seems to be nothing magical about the relays - looks like any 2PDT 12 volt relay would do the job. If it seems too good to believe, chances are it is...
: Thanks very much for your time.
Good luck and best regards,
